Chunky Green Curry Sandwich with Red Pepper

OMG today is one of those days, A QUICK SANDWICH!!!! Haha, I had bought a jar of green curry soup I haven’t used yet, even though I really should make that curry soup I’ve wanted to forever, but anyway, I thought it would be a really nice change to have a green curry sandwich!

I had a phone call to make this afternoon, and I had to finish up everything early, so it’s always a great idea to make sandwiches!

I’ve been really crazy with that packet of soy protein chunks I got at the Asian grocery store, so I’ve been using that in quite a few recipes.

Though, I also recommend you to try tempeh if you don’t have that, as it would work really well too!

I used this awesome tasting Trader Joe’s whole wheat bread, which I really love buying as it seems much fresher than the ones at the regular supermarket!

So anyway, this has a strong “pepper” taste, so if you’re not a fan of pepper, I suggest that you don’t make it, or leave out that giant bell pepper and replace with a tomato or something like that instead. Also, the curry sauce I got was also from Trader Joe’s, but there’s plenty of green curry paste around you can try.

Chunky Green Curry Sandwich with Red Pepper

6 slices whole wheat/multigrain bread (I used Trader Joe’s)
A handful dried soy protein chunks/tempeh
2 tablespoons green curry sauce
1 tablespoon lemongrass paste
1 teaspoon lime juice
2-3 sprigs fresh thyme
1 red bell pepper
A handful spring mix leaves (eg baby spinach, baby lettuce, baby kale, etc)
1 avocado
A few squirts lime juice

If you’re using tempeh, simply cut it in slices. If using dried soy protein, cook in boiling water for about 5 minutes until it softens, then drain out all the water.

In a small bowl, mix together the green curry paste, lemongrass paste, lime juice and thyme (de-stem first). Stir until everything is well mixed, then add either the tempeh or soy protein chunks in there and mix it around until the sauce it very well.

Slice the bell pepper in four flat, big pieces.

Put the sauce, soy protein chunks/tempeh in the frying pan, then add the bell pepper pieces too. Stir it around so the sauce can coat the peppers.

Fry on medium high (5-6) for about 7-10 minutes until it browns a little.

Meanwhile, be sure you’re toasting the bread either in a toaster, oven toaster or oven if you want the bread pieces to be crunchy.

Assemble: Lay the toast out, put a few pieces of spring mix leaves on the bottom, then a bell pepper piece, 3-4 pieces of soy protein/tempeh, a few pieces of chopped avocado and a squirt or two of lime juice on top. Close the sandwich and cut in half.
